What is Corporate Membership?

This enables organisations and their employees to gain deeper engagement through our networking opportunities, research and closed-door briefings. This can be through support for a particular research, involvement in our events and conferences, speaking opportunities, or receiving invitations to exclusive events.

A membership can help investors, businesses, educationalists and policy makers understand modern India through opportunities for engagement in a variety of ways.

Corporate members are permitted a set number of nominees, typically from within their organisation, depending on the nature of their Corporate Membership. Nominated members benefit from the same features as individual members, with additional access through our corporate engagement.
